HOW DO I USE THE VENTS IN MY GRILL?

Most charcoal grills have vents on both the top and the bottom. A grill with open vents burns hotter than a grill with the vents closed. If you’re looking to cool things down, consider closing the vents.

WHEN DO I COVER MY GRILL WITH A LID?

If the food you’re cooking is 3/4” or thinner, like baby asparagus or slices of zucchini, keep the lid off. If it’s a thick cut pork chops, corn on the cob, or chicken breast, close the lid. Closing the lid takes advantage of the convection heat that grills are known for.

HOW DO I MAINTAIN MY GRILLS?
HOW DO I EXTINGUISH THE BURNING BRIQUETTES?

Use sand to extinguish the briquettes quickly. You could also sprinkle small amount of water on the briquettes. A slower method to extinguish is to close all the vents and cover the lid of the grill and let it cool down.

The leftover ash, once cooled down, acts as an excellent manure.
